Today's tour was a true winter experience in Iceland - cold morning and challenging sea conditions to spot animals, as the fog (that came out of nowhere) was piking up and limiting visibility badly. Luckily the ocean stayed calm and we enjoyed sailing through winter landscape of Eyafjordur. We found two big individuals of Humpback whales on west side of Hrisey Island and we watched them surfacing more than several times around the boat and showing us their beautiful flukes. Unfortunately as my camera died at the very beginning of the tour, the identity of the whales still needs to be investigated but thanks to one of our passengers - it will be possible! Today's great pictures on the blog we owe to Karen Am Ende - Thank You Karen!
